Mirjam BRUSIUS

Mirjam Brusius MA (History of Art, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) PhD (History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge) is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oxford. She previously held Postdoctoral Fellowships at Harvard University, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, and the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz. Mirjam’s research addresses the intersection of modern history of science and the history of European and Islamic art. It centres on the history of photography, museums, collecting and scientific voyages in and between Europe and the Middle East. Her doctoral thesis, forthcoming monograph (The University of Chicago Press/De Gruyter) and recent articles concerned the scholarly archive of the British inventor of photography, gentleman of science and antiquarian W.H.F. Talbot, whose notebooks she catalogued at the British Library as an AHRC collaborative doctoral award holder. She is co-editor of W.H.F. Talbot: Beyond Photography (Yale University Press 2013). She also writes on early photography in Iran and more widely in the Middle East. She is currently working on her second book ‘The Canon under Threat’ on the value of Mesopotamian archaeological finds during the transition period on their way to Europe when the objects seemed to have ‘no status’. This project investigates the subsequent epistemological difficulties the finds caused upon their arrival in the leading museums of Paris, London and Berlin. Her current interests resulted in two (co-)organized meetings in 2014: ‘Tales from the Crypt: Museum Storage and Meaning’ (V&A) and ‘The Disciplined Past. Critical Reflections on the Study of the Middle East’ (Harvard University).

Lissa Roberts is professor of long term development of science and technology at the University of Twente.

She now heads the STEP’s research program on ‘long term development of science and technology’. Roberts’ current interests are oriented around four broad themes: 1) tracing the historical evolution and transgressions of the (claimed) divide between ‘science’ and ‘technology’; 2) investigating science and technology as co-evolutionary constituents of the broader context in which they develop; 3) integrating the history of science and technology as constituent elements of global history; 4) understanding entrepreneurialism and innovation in historical context. This can be seen in her current research and recent publications, which focus on topics including eighteenth-century chemistry, the early development and application of steam technology, ‘entrepreneurial engineers’ and the cultural history of science and technology in and around Tokugawa Japan.
